(photo by Brian Murphy) 1. “Come Alive” by Prospect Hill Coming into their wild card match-up against the Seattle Seahawks, the Washington Redskins had a pretty clear and straight forward game plan. On defense, they wanted to do their best to neutralize running back Marshawn Lynch — making Seattle one-dimensional and putting added pressure on a rookie quarterback playing on the road in his first-ever postseason game. On offense, the Redskins wanted to keep the opposition guessing by getting running […]

Had the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings both lost, the burgundy and gold would have been a lock for the postseason regardless of the outcome of their rivalry game with the Dallas Cowboys. So naturally, both the Bears and VIkings won their […]

(photo by Brian Murphy) 1. “Dancing With The Dead” by 10 Years For the briefest of moments, it absolutely appeared the Washington Redskins were going to do their best to ruin the holidays. That’s because, for the briefest of moments, it appeared that Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles had completed a third-down pass to receiver Jeremy Maclin, who was wide open in the right corner of the end zone. Fortunately for the burgundy and gold, the rookie quarterback didn’t get […]

(photo by Brian Murphy) 1. “Ace of Spades” by Motorhead All season long, the Washington Redskins have been guided on a magical journey thanks to an electrifying rookie quarterback. Unfortunately though, Robert Griffin III was sidelined this week when the team traveled to Cleveland to face the Browns, thanks to a knee injury. So the Redskins playoffs hopes now rested in the capable hands of the other rookie quarterback — Michigan State product¬†Kirk Cousins. Against the Baltimore Ravens one week […]

(photo by Brian Murphy) 1. “The Memory Remains” by Metallica The Washington Redskins defeated the Baltimore Ravens in a thrilling come-from-behind victory. Their 31-28 overtime win came courtesy of the backup quarterback, who was thrust into action with the game on the line in the fourth quarter after the face of the¬†franchise — quarterback Robert Griffin III — was knocked out of the game with a knee injury. Even after the offense scored an improbable 11-yard touchdown with 29 seconds […]

(photo by Brian Murphy) 1. “Changing” by Alabama Shakes After finishing up his post-game press conference duties, Washington Redskins franchise quarterback Robert Griffin III paused for a moment as he walked back into the locker room. The rookie was still wearing his grass-stained uniform after a tough and physical NFC East battle against the New York Giants, but before he could shower and head home there was one thing left to do. Griffin paused, surveyed the room and said to […]

(photo by Brian Murphy) 1. “How It Starts” by The Features While many local sports fans felt good after the Washington Redskins 31-6 beatdown of the hapless Philadelphia Eagles one week ago, there was a lot less reason for optimism heading into their Week 12 match-up. The Redskins had never beaten the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving day (0-6). They had yet to earn a victory at the new state-of-the-art Cowboys Stadium (0-3). Quarterback Tony Romo had never lost at home […]
